We may have eaten our entire stockpile of snacks and made it through our Netflix queue, but we're still creating in quarantine.
We’re settled in to our home offices, taking advantage of the nice weather when we can and getting used to our new coworkers (aka pets and kids). But most importantly, we’re still creating great work.
We’re witnessing so many great things right now. Community building. Businesses collaborating. Neighborhood scavenger hunts, driveway art and social-distancing parties. A very real push to shop and eat local. This whole #togetherness thing has been truly inspiring. And has led us to some new partnerships and fun projects.
Not Your Typical Zoom Tips & Tricks
Jazz up those conference calls and impress your family, clients and colleagues!
- Use Snap Camera to turn yourself into a potato or Joe Exotic or add your favorite SnapChat filter.
- Transport yourself to another place to satisfy your wanderlust. Change your background to one from West Elm, Disney, Hallmark Channel, National Parks and more.
- Looking for some friendly competition? Fire up Jackbox Games with your friends and family.
